In the late 60s my musical appreciation turned almost exclusively to the Blues, so Magic Sam, Freddie King, Howlin' Wolf, Luther Allison and Fleetwood Mac (the Peter Green version, obviously) have been right up there ever since I became familiar with them.

But when I wax nostalgic and revisit rock it would most often be the Who or the Beatles.

Well this is easy:

1. Beatles - together and solo
2. Rolling Stones
3. Eric Clapton - from Mayall to the present
4. Yes
5. Fleetwood Mac - from 1970 on.

jeez "1" is a tall order, as I could see from the other response...but I will attempt a one answer, good for just this moment, as ask me later and it will change, though, as the others, there are several/many in the top five/ten/twenty...most of my listening remains in the '70's also:

Neil Young

wait, Cat Stevens, Joan Baez, Dylan, Leonard Cohen (maybe he's numero uno?), Melanie, Janis Ian, old country (Johnny, Willy, Waylon, Merle, George, Dolly, Tammy, Patsy), the big '70's band, some Bruce, Ramones-Patti Smith (the fun clubbing days of my well-spent youth), omg I am worse than the others...OK, I am finished...
oh wait...nevermind, too difficult, suffice to say, so little new today worthwhile...

The original Mahavishnu Orchestra. Saw them in Boulder, Colorado in the early seventies. Although they exploded apart after a year of touring and only released 3 albums, no one had ever heard music like that, before...or since. All were virtuosos of their instrument. John McLaughlin-Guitar, Billy Cobham-Drums, Jan Hammer-Keyboards, Jerry Goodman-Violin, Rick Laird-Bass. Albums on Columbia - Inner Mounting Flame, Birds Of Fire, Between Nothingness And Eternity. The Greatest Band That Ever Was.

without a doubt

REO Speedwagon
yeah I know, some of you are puking or laughing, however, all 3 bring back fond memories of high school parties out in the middle of the desert and many house parties with the volume way up. And unbelievable live shows!

Steve Morse/Dregs
Jonas Hellborg/Shawn Lane/Jeff Sipe
these guys will always be in the running. They kick my you know what every time I listen to them!

Porcupine Tree
although relatively new (2 years) to me , these guys have blown me away. I cant see them ever dropping off of my list.

oops, thats 7, sorry.

Simon & Garfunkel for me have to be the choice.

Even though with their limited number of albums, and their "long time ago" status, song after song, album for album, they are never tiring, always comforting, and continue to move me with their (what I call) "reflective insight". There are many great artists and songwriters that I treasure and hold dear to my heart from my 63 years, but these two guys have never faded or diminished from being the dearest minstrels to my heart where musical expression is concerned. It would be just wonderful if they would get back together one more time for a few years and give us a couple of mature albums of their work before they are either too old to do so, or one of them passes away.

You're treasured and missed, guys, but certainly not forgotten!

"Frank Zapper and the Mothers" as Mr Gillan would say (since 72)...he went from #1 to #2 after I saw a Dead show (1980)...he's still #2...and the Dead remain #1...The Who are #3 and were always in a top 5 since Quad in 73...

Good question!

I guess I only have 4 really
U2, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Skillet.

Simple Minds. I realize that few on here know or care about them. I loved the song from the Breakfast Club and the rest is history.
